Answering the call for justice: Ford on 60 Minutes

A virus that brought the world to a halt. A reckoning of America’s 400 years of racism. Deadly extreme weather exacerbated by climate change. The challenges we face as a world are many and can be overwhelming. But Ford is in the business of hope. According to president Darren Walker, tough times demand a deep commitment to the hard work of hope—there is always a better way forward, no matter how daunting the path.

On 60 Minutes, Lesley Stahl profiled the Ford Foundation and its efforts to reimagine philanthropy, tackle inequality around the world, and build a future that works for all.
